Prophet has fallen in love with a beautiful girl named, Trinity. They messaged back and forth over Facebook and have been inseparable online. Prophet believes this is a one of kind match and wants to meet the beautiful girl in the photo despite his doubts. According to Prophet, he is new to the Internet so was not aware of the term Catfish.

 Prophet is a multi-platinum artist looking for love. He has tried to invite Trinity to his location, but it just hasn't happened. He hasn't asked her to webcam or video chat, but he at least has heard her voice.

Nev and Max decide to take the case and fly out to Kentucky to meet Trinity in person. They question him on his story and get the scoop. Prophet admits that Trinity has helped him by allowing him to vent about a police case that he is going through dealing with police brutality. "Trinity is not like every other girl."

Nev and Max start their investigation based on all the information Prophet has. (Facebook page, cell phone number, photos.) They start with her Facebook page and start to scout the page. She has over 600 friends and look at the posts on her page. Most of the posts are from guys. Hmmm... Next they do an image search and instantly get a hit from a "Jasmine Sanders." Apparently she's Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend and the Catfish is stealing her pictures from her Instagram. Welp...

Nev decides to send Jasmine a video message to reach out to her to see if she is aware that her photos are being taken. They search Trinity's number and find a the owner of the number is named Crystal. She also lives fairly close to Prophet. They scout Facebook with Trinity's real identity and find loads of "Crystals" in Kentucky. Prophet could literally be talking to anyone!

Jasmine gets back to Nev and confirms the worst. She has no idea of anyone who could be using her photos. She claims it happens all the time and is quite frustrating.

Nev and Max meet up with Prophet and reveal the bad news that Trinity is indeed a Catfish. Prophet is really upset by the news. "Who have I been talking to?" Nev tries to call Trinity, but she does not answer. The next day, Trinity responds back with a text message telling Nev to call her. He calls her back and explains that Prophet now knows that she's been lying. Trinity seems very skeptical and surprised that they were able to solve her lies.

Nev asks what her real name is and she almost refuses to give it out. Eventually though she confirms that her name is Crystal. Mmmhm... Nev calls up Prophet after Crystal decides that she's willing to meet Prophet in person. They drive to a local park where the meet will take place.

Prophet be like...

Prophet is not impressed with the results which is expected. This girl has been lying to him for months... Prophet tells the crew that he feels embarrassed and would rather deal with this tomorrow after he's cooled down.

The next day, Nev and Max head over to Crystal's house to find out why she did this. She explains that she made a fake profile to look at her ex-boyfriend's profile when she stumbled across Prophet's FB. They hit it off fairly quickly after messaging him and knew he wouldn't be pleased with the real outcome. Crystal wants to continue her relationship with Prophet, but girl...I don't think that's going to happen.

Nev calls P over to Crystal's house to listen to Crystal's apology. He comes over and hears her out. She explains that she is sorry and really wants to stay in touch with him. Despite her lying about her appearance she really did help him out with his struggles. Prophet agrees to stay in touch with Crystal but not in any romantic type of way.

#Catfish The TV Show: Episode 14: Cyber Bully Catfish?

Source: MTV

Just another day to find some Catfish, and that's exactly what Nev and Max do on tonight's episode. Falesha writes to Nev and Max for help. 

Meet Falesha:
Source: MTV

From a small town outside of Pittsburgh, about five years ago she had a bad run in with an online profile of a girl named Jacqueline. 

Source: MTV


She claims that the account had all pictures of her! Apparently this girl was really rude and insulting to others online. Jacqueline made it worse when she changed her name to Falesha's real name online and started adding her peers from her local high school. Jacqueline, using Falesha's identity started to harass her fellow students by telling people to "Kill themselves."

Source: MTV

Falesha explains that she lost a lot of friends at school since most people believed it was her making the rude comments. Falesha did all she could to prove to people that her identity was being used to victimize other people but was having a difficult time doing so. Nev and Max meet Falesha and her mother to hear more of the story.

Source: MTV

Her mother explains that she worried for her daughter's mental welfare as this took a toll on her life. Nev and Max start to look at some of the horrible things Jacqueline posted. They quickly realize that this is pretty serious and scary. 

Later, Nev and Max start to look at the old profile and comments to see what victims have said. They find a few posts of people talking about their interaction with this Jacqueline account. Nev reaches out to two different girls to get their side of the story. 

Source: MTV

The first girl, that Nev reaches out to, Danielle, explains that a guy that went to her high school, named Cory was getting harassed by this Jacqueline girl. Eventually, he dropped out of school and currently nobody knows where he is.

The second girl that Nev reached out to, Jennifer, calls up Nev to explain her experience with Jacqueline. Jennifer explains that Jacqueline friend requested her back then and she accepted her because she wanted a high friend count. Once she was accepted, Jacqueline started saying rude things to her.

Source: MTV

Knowing this wasn't right, Jennifer made a fake profile herself and used one of her guy friend's photos to lure in Jacqueline. She used the fake profile to flirt with her and find out who this girl was. Eventually, Jacqueline agreed to be in a relationship with this fake account and Jennifer was able to ask and receive her log in info from her! 

Apparently her real name is Tracey! Jennifer goes on to explain that she changed the settings/password on the account and ended up closing the account. Way to go, Jennifer! 

"You're like a cyber vigilante."  - Max

Nev and Max do a quick Facebook search with the new identity and find her!

Will the real Jacqueline please stand up?

Nev and Max meet Falesha's friends to give her an update on their findings.

Source: MTV

Falesha is surprised by what they found. Nev shows her Tracey's account. Falesha says she has never seen this girl in her life and is overwhelmed with this information. Nev decides that they need to make contact with Tracey and hopeful meet up with this girl to find out why she is doing all of this. Falesha agrees that Nev should make contact so he leaves the building to call her up.

When the line finally picks up a bubbly young sounding girl answers and doesn't seem surprised, nor fazed that Nev has contacted her out of the blue. When questioned about her connection to Falesha, she instantly replies, "Falesha Linkwood? Yep, that's me!"

What the hell....

"It's fun being her," - Tracey

I don't know about Nev, but I got the major creeps from hearing Tracey talk over the phone. She reminded me of a demented Harley Quinn. She was completely cheerful with all the repulsive things she's done to others online.

The next day, Nev, Max and Falesha head to Maryland where Tracey lives. They arrive at her house and prepare to knock on her door.

The door opens and here's the nutjob, I mean girl, Tracey.

Basically, Tracey explains the reason she did this was because she wanted to have an alter ego similar to the fictional character Hannah Montana... Wut? 

"I was Tracey by day and Jacqueline by night!" - Tracey

Me:
Source: MTV

Honestly, I think there is something majorly wrong with this girl. She's way too chipper with the sadistic online bullying she's done to people online. The whole time I was like, "What the fuck..."

The next day, they come back to visit with Tracey and her mom. Still, Tracey continues her peppy upbeat attitude.

Source: MTV

Throughout the whole interview, she continues to laugh like this process is a joke. It's like she has the personality of an 8-year-old girl. She's delusional.  Her mother is aware that she stole pictures but does not realize that she's saying malicious things to people online. She tells her daughter to apologize, but she refuses while laughing.

Source: MTV

Nev makes it clear that if she doesn't stop her actions then it could get her in big trouble. Surprisingly, it seems like after some explaining that Tracey starts to allow this to influence her. She tells them that she is a good person and will consider changing. But at the end of the day, she needs some help. 

This was probably the most bizarre episode of Catfish that I have ever seen. It'll definitely go down as one of the more memorable episodes.

#Catfish The TV Show: Episode 13: Baby Daddy Problems

Source: MTV

Tiana reached out to Nev and Max to help her find out the secret that her one and only true love is hiding from her. Tiana's story is simple. She met James through MySpace a few years back when she was living in Seattle. James was living in North Carolina at the time and she never thought she'd get to meet him. Five months ago, she informed James that she had family that lived in North Carolina and was considering moving back home. Once making the final decision, Tiana moved back home and after five months of living there had yet to meet James in person. According to Tiana, the two live 45 minutes away which concerns Tiana on why James does not want to meet her, after offering the idea to marry her.

Meet Tiana.
Source: MTV

Nev and Max call Tiana up on Skype only to find that she's not very familiar with the show, despite saying she had just watched an episode last night. She confuses Nev for Max and Max for Nev, which is awkward...Tiana explains that she had recently just had a baby. She goes further onto explain that she has pestered James to webcam but he always makes an excuse on why he can't webcam. Once Tiana was in NC, she said that James continued to make excuses to meet up, even though they were very close in distance. 

Nev and Max agree to help Tiana get down to discovering why James won't meet with her in person. Is James a Catfish, or is he who he says he is. The Internet sleuths fly to NC and meet Tiana at her home. Nev and Max get to know Tiana's story with James. She explains that she made numerous meetup points for her and James to meet in person. Each time James stood her up even though he said he would commit to meeting in person. 

#WhoIsJames

Nev and Max head to a local cafe with WiFi to start their investigation.

Source: MTV 

All that Tiana knows about James is that he is a mechanic. They start to do a google search and find the picture that James provided of himself of some recording artist. Apparently James is lying about his appearance. Not good... They see this artist has a Youtube channel, RED FLAG. I thought James didn't have a webcam? They also stumble across his Facebook account with pictures. Then, the shock of all shockers. They find an account they believe to be James and he's a white bald dude!

Source: MTV

Nev and Max head back to meet with Tiana and her friend Aisha, and her daughter Journai. 

Source: MTV

They go over everything they found. They show Tipsy Twist, the guy that came up when they searched the photo. They show Tiana the video where she can hear Tipsy Twist's voice. She confirms that his voice does not sound like that. Then the show

Source: MTV

Realization comes to light that Tiana has not been talking to the guy she thinks she has been for three years. Nev goes outside and calls James to offer the idea of meeting up. James sounds hesitant but decides to meet up. 

The next day, Nev, Max, Tiana, and Aisha head out to meet James. Best part about it: James is only ten minutes away from their location. Hm...Aisha notes as they drive up to the location that this area feels familiar. Then, it hits her. Aisha says that this is her baby daddies shop and that he works there. (Ricky G)

The doors finally open and "James" walks out into the light. Aisha is shocked as it turns out to be her baby's dad; Trez! Instantly, Aisha starts to believe that Tiana was in on this the whole time and knew that James was really Trez. Tiana denies that she had any idea that this was Trez and sticks by her word. #BabyDaddyProblems

Source: MTV

Trez explains that he met at this location a few years ago and met Tiana at a party. He says they never really were introduced but believed that they liked each other. Tiana says she was at the party before she moved to Washington. Aisha is completely livid that her ex was behind this the whole time. Tiana is confused and embarrassed by this and they leave.

Source: MTV

The next day after some thinking, Tiana decides to meet with Trez with Aisha to get a better explanation. He expresses that he really does have strong feelings for her. The two make up. The two decide to start fresh and give this relationship a try.

#Reign: Season 2 Finale: "Burn" Review & Recap

Source: TheCW

After telling Conde that she's pregnant with his child, Mary continues to hide out at his camp. Conde's men scatter through camp with some new prostitutes that come to please them. Mary is still eager to flee to Scotland with Conde, but he isn't having that, as he intends to attack the castle at dawn and take over like planned.

Back at French court, Francis and Catherine are aware of Mary's betrayal after discovering she has fled to Conde. Catherine has pretty much had it with Mary's lies and wants to end ties with the Scottish queen permanently. 


A servant goes to check in on Delphine, but her room seems eerie quiet and dark. Something attacks the servant in Delphine's chambers then cuts to a new scene. Claude informs Leith about the creature she had seen in the secret passages, was recently accused of attacking one of the chamber maids. Leith still believes what she saw in the passageways was just her imagination and that she should drop her theory. Claude speculates that Delphine may be able to shape-shift into some sort of creature, but Leith thinks it's bullshit.


At Conde's camp, a supposed 'virus' has spread among camp. Panic erupts as soldiers believe another plague may be occurring. Conde realizes that the whores hired to entertain his soldiers are the ones spreading the rumor, planting this in their heads. He notices Mary calmly watching the chaos occur around camp, before she heads back inside her tent. At that moment, Conde realizes that Mary may have been behind this to stall the attack. When he chases after her and heads inside the tent, she stabs him in the gut! Holy crap, Mary! Badass.



Source: TheCW

Conde drops to his knees asking what she had lied about. Mary explains that she lied about being pregnant, and about Francis having reinforcements on the way. She also tells him that she enlisted Greer's whores to help falsify the plague claims. Brilliant plan if you ask me. Saddened by the fact it had to come to this, she watches as Conde looses his consciousness before her.


At court, Conde's men still haven't attacked and Sebastian and Francis think something is wrong. Sebastian tells Francis that he believes Mary truly did not betrayal them as she gave him some information to stay hopeful.

Francis arrives to Conde's camp with his men, and finds Mary with Louis unconscious and bleeding out. He can't believe that Mary stopped the coup from happening pretty much all on her own. They take out his men and they arrest Conde to imprison him in the castle.


Source: TheCW

The castle rejoices with their victory and Francis questions Mary on why she went through with all of this. After all, Conde's men outnumbered the French army and she could have had everything she wanted with Conde. She admits that she did this because she still loves Francis despite their strained relationship. Greer arrives to court on Mary's order. Mary thanks Greer for her help by servicing her ladies.  

General Renaude is being prepared to be hung for treason, but he's not shy to give Kenna some knowledge on Elizabeth's plot against Mary. He tells her that she will stop at nothing until Mary is destroyed. Kenna turns away once her lover is hung before her.

Claude visits Sebastian to inform him about Dauphine. He's still skeptical about all the attack claims. Kenna visits Sebastian and they rekindle their love and make some, if you know what I mean...

In other parts of the castle, word of Delphine's binding ritual is traveling among the servants. Sebastian confronts Delphine of these rumors and tells her to confess if they are true, after all, they are spooking the servants of the castle. She tells him that people just think that because she's a healer. 

Mary visits Conde in jail and is still completely in love with her despite that fact that she literally stabbed him in the back. Francis recieves news that Lola and his son John were kidnapped and killed, ordered by Louis himself. What the hell? 

 Source: TheCW
Enraged that his infant son was killed, Francis storms into the cell where Mary and Conde are. He goes to kill him there but stops. Conde pleads and tries all he can, to tell Francis that he would never harm his infant son. He tells him that someone had set him up.

Lord Narcisse addresses that the information of Lola's carriage route came from within the castle walls. So he's off to find where Lola may be being held. He eventually finds Lady Lola and John unharmed and they're not Elizabeth's men. Uh, oh...Who done it?

Back in the dungeon, the executor comes to visit Conde but it turns out it wasn't really the executioner but instead one of Elizabeth's men. He frees Conde and the prince escapes from French court. Great...


Source: TheCW

Narcisse returns with Lola and John alive and well. He tells Francis that Catherine was behind all this. Apparently, she planted evidence to drive Francis to execute Conde. Clever, girl. She really wanted some bloodshed.

After dismissing Delphine to be a monster, we find her in another ritual ceremony. The servant boy she seduced and performed black magic on is now dead. She has him bleeding out on the floor in some sort of pentagon. Delphine is taken away for being a heretic. 

Mary addresses Catherine about her plot to kidnap Lola and John. Catherine's tries to reason with Mary by explaining that she did this for them to prevent a war from breaking out. She says that she needed Francis to kill Louis to end this madness.


Source: TheCW

Mary tells Catherine that she's already informed someone to let Francis know that his son is alive and well. Catherine is devastated that Francis will probably never forgive her.


Source: TheCW

Catherine is stripped of her title, home, income, dignity, family and is banished from French court. Let's just say she is not happy...

Francis and Mary put their differences and betrayals behind and also rekindle their love. They have sex for the first time in months and it looks like this year long struggle has only brought them closer. 


Source: TheCW

Later, Francis meets with a stranger in a darkened hall. He tells them that he hopes Mary gets pregnant this time to keep her safe. "I'm dying," he says. 

The figure in the shrouded in the shadows steps out to be revealed as none other than Nostradamus! "Yes, you are," he confirms. Oh, boy...

Meanwhile, Catherine visits Queen Elizabeth in England. Intrigued by her visit, Elizabeth has no time for chit chat. She gets down to business fast and wants to know why she is here. Catherine explains that she is here to help take down their mutual enemy, Mary.

Source: Channel 5

It's summer time and you know what that means? BBUK. If you're a fan of the US or even the Canadian version you're sure to love the UK one just as much. This one will for sure tide you over until the US one starts in June, but enough yapping, time to meet our new housemates!

Source: Channel 5

Meet Aaron (24)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Northampton. 
• A model. 
• Qualified beauty therapist.
• Loves The Little Mermaid.

First Impressions:
I got the vibe that Aaron is going to a laugh inside the house. He seems pretty funny and I think he'll get some potentially good DR's. I actually didn't realize he was gay until he started talking, other wise I would have never guessed.

Meet Adjoa (22)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Manchester.
• Committed Christian.
• Her first language is Dutch.

First Impression:
Another entertainer for sure. I don't know how long she'll stay in the house as I can see a lot of conflicts arising with this girl in the house. 

Meet Cristian (20)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From London.
• Studying Biomedical Science at UCL.
• Previously dated a British Soap Actress.
• Likes to rap.

First Impression:
I would have never gotten the vibe that this dude would be pursuing a medical career. He reminded a little bit of Dappy from CBB. I'm sure he'll get some attention from the ladies within the house. 

Meet Amy & Sally (27)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• Both from Manchester.
• Biological twins.
• Amy dated a famous footballer & reality TV star.
• Sally spends up to £500 a month on beauty regimes.

First Impressions:
Double the trouble if you ask me. They seem pretty high maintenance. They didn't really have much to say in their VT. They might be beautiful, but that doesn't mean they'll be entertaining.

Meet Danny (29)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Margate.
• Best mates with Ricci from Geordie Shore. (Whey-Aye!)
• Claims to have dated plenty of ex CBB housemates. (Ooh, wonder who?)

Facts:
• From Doncaster.
• Obsessed with Bendirom.
• Treated liked a celebrity.

Meet Jack (23)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Plymouth.
• Known as Pie Face in his hometown.
• Passionate, life-long Argyle fan.

First Impression:
Just from watching his VT, Pie Face, I mean, Jack, is sure to be at least final 5. I'm sure England will be able to relate to him and he will be sure to be a laugh. He seems pretty down to earth and isn't trying to put on his bravado like some of the other lads do. 

Meet Eileen (51)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From London.
• Featured on X Factor with her partner, Bo.
• Believes she looks like Nicole Kidman.
• Loves film & directing.

First Impressions:
Definitely not the mom type of the house. She fits her own category that's for sure. I'm interested to see where she'll fall within the house. She could easily mesh well with a few of the housemates or be one of the outcasts. 

Meet Kieran (30)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Birmingham. 
• Sold his successful restaurant to pursue his entertainment career.
• Has his own radio show: The Kieran McLeod Show.

First Impression:
I couldn't really good read on him. He was a bit all over the place if you ask me. I know Luissa Zissman is apparently good friends with him according to Twitter. It'll be interesting to see how he messes with the other housemates. He says' he's here to bring entertainment and hopefully he's not a flop.

Meet Harriet (22)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From London.
• Believes she and Alan Carr have a lot in common.
• Supported Ukip in this year's election.

Meet Joel (19)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Cardiff.
• Publishes his own magazine to 3,000 people.
• Youngest councillor in Wales.

First Impression:
Smart, well-spoken, sweet, could be potentially boring, but I'm hoping he'll prove me wrong. 

Meet Sarah (24)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Manchester.
• Self - Proclaimed: Selfish, Stuck up, Bitch.
• Not a team player.
• Aiming for a law degree.

First Impression:
Another potential villain for the season. The question is, will she take that spotlight? If she really is as confrontational as she says she is, how long will she last in the house?

Meet Simon (46)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Kent.
• Has been in showbiz for 30 years.
• Wants to be the first male version of Margaret Thatcher. 

First Impression:
Clearly meant to be the entertainment factor of this house. I already could tell that I'm going to like him. Yet, when he walked down the catwalk, he got a few boos, what the hell? He kind of reminds me of Louie Spence, who was one of my favs from the celebrity edition.

Meet Jade (24)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Dublin.
• Doesn't believe in Monogamy.
• Follows a Polyamorous lifestyle.
• Has pet rats, but would like to add a pet bat to her family.

First Impression:
She seems pretty laid back, but she's a very pretty girl. Love the Irish accent and I'm interested to see what she'll bring to the house. I could see her easily getting into a showmance or two, especially since she is fond of open relationships.

Meet Nick (19)
Source: Channel 5

Facts:
• From Hertford.
• Expelled from 2 schools.
• Has no qualifications.
• Has never been in a proper relationship.

First Impression:
I think we found out season's villain or maybe even potential winner? I think Nick is going to be the one saying everything we the audience will be thinking when inside the house. People like a person they can relate to. He could have some very interestign DR's.

The Twist:
• The housemates were told that the public would vote for 5 housemates to partipate in this twist.

Housemates gather in the living room

The five housemates that were chosen to participate in the twists were Adjoa, Jack, Jade, Nick and Simon.
Source: Channel 5

The five were told that that they would have to stand at a podium to decide which housemate is to get which timebomb. Each houseguest stood behind a podium where they would receive their punishment or reward.

Jack went first. When He received three immunity passes to use with his time in the house. That's pretty huge.

Source: Channel 5

Nick went second. Nick has to nominate face to face for each nomination inside the house. Bummer, especially since he said in his VT that he doesn't like to say things to people's face and rather behind their back. 

Source: Channel 5

Jade went third and got luxury. She is allowed to have a luxury shopping list just for her.

Source: Channel 5

It came down between Adjoa and Simon. Big Brother informed them that one of them would open their time bomb and one would be instantly evicted. That's pretty cruel... Simon opened his time bomb and he was evicted. Nooo!!

Bye, Simon. You'll be missed!
